GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Meijer announced today it is adjusting store hours to allow more time for customers to get their shopping essentials and extending the times its stores dedicate to senior citizens, customers with chronic health conditions, essential service workers and its team members.

Essential service workers include all medical workers, first responders and law enforcement. Senior citizens are considered age 60 and older. Meijer is asking its customers and the public to please respect the times for these important groups.
